Back in the middle Ages, there was a woman who had a snake as a pet, a python which she loved so much.
The snake was 4 meters long and looked healthy. However, one day it just stopped eating. The desperate woman tried everything she could and offered anything that a snake would like. Still, the snake seemed ignorant and refused to eat. Finally, the woman took her loving pet to the vet as a last resort.
The vet listened to the story carefully and then asked the woman whether the snake sleeps with her at night, wraps around her, and whether it tends to spread out throughout its length.
Being happy to hear that, the woman gave a positive reply. She further explained that it looks like the snake asks for something, but she is unable to help and make it feel better.
Then, the vet said something shocking. Namely, the python wasn’t sick but it has been preparing to eat her instead!
As he explained, each time the snake used to creep and wrap around the lady`s body, it was actually checking her size and weighing how a great meal she was and how prepared it has to be prior the attack. Speaking of the reason for its refusal to eat, it was actually making enough space so that it is easier to swallow and digest its next meal (the lady herself).
In brief, the moral of this story is that sometimes it is difficult to identify the nearby snake and its true intention. Namely, just because someone “close” is hugging and kissing you doesn’t necessarily means that his intentions are good. As the story suggests, you may be taken aback by his true intention!
